Her practice is experimental and multi-disciplinary, often driven by an interest in contradiction or paradox. It is an approach which is concerned with mythos; a way of knowing that is intuitive and basic. She often constructs scenarios or actions that manipulate the ‘real’ or recognizable.
This blog was originally intended as a way to explore ideas for her research, a kind of reading diary or notebook. Hopefully it is a place where half-formed ideas can be read, thought about and revised.
